LAKELAND, Fla. – The Polk County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a motor vehicle theft that happened early Monday morning in the Copper Ridge neighborhood off of North Campbell Road in Lakeland.
Investigators say two suspects burglarized a vehicle and found a key fob inside of it which was for the victim’s other vehicle, a Ford F150. The suspects used the key and stole the F150.
Later, the suspects took the truck to a gas station and filled it up with gas, but they were unable to restart the truck, so they abandoned it.
